The Laurel Ridge area is a quiet, residentual golf community. We have lived in this general area for many years and are passionate about our mountains and mountain heritage. We both enjoy the outdoor activities that are around us in every direction and find it difficult to name only a few favorite places or activities. We have tried to make the retreat one that we ourselves would be comfortable in and one that is welcoming for guests.

Private street with only three homes and spectacular view of Mount Pisgah and surrounding mountains.
Easy Access to main four lane highway (23/74) with breathtaking views. One can get to a variety of pastimes from our place very easily and yet maintain the feeling of a retreat.
This was our second visit. Jim and Ellen are wonderful hosts. Apartment is nice, clean and comfortable with a wonderful view. Very convient to Waynesville and surrounding areas. We hope to return next year for visit #3.
Arriving at our home away from home, you instantly feel like someone thought out just what you needed from these mountains and it was all there just waiting for you to enjoy. This place is decorated with such good taste and nothing is forgotten, I promise you that. You will want to mark it down to be here every time you are coming this way.
Ellen and Jim's apartment was even better than it sounded in the description. I have rented other condos especially for cooking meals in a full kitchen and their kitchen is the best equipped by far that I have ever seen. The view from the porch will immediately lower your blood pressure and make you wish you could stay forever. The directions were excellent and it is so convenient to 74, such a short drive away, yet so peaceful and quiet you feel like you are in the middle of the forest. Ellen was especially helpful, and so prompt to answer my questions! The night before I drove up there I called her to ask whether I should pack certain items or if she already had them in the apartment, and she had all but one, and made a special trip to obtain the missing item and leave it for me in the utility room. The apartment was spotless and well maintained. The bed was extremely comfortable and the night so quiet and peaceful I had no problem falling asleep. I had come to attend a class and did not have much time to explore the area but needed exercise one evening after class and on the advice of the instructor, drove the short distance to Lake Junaluska and enjoyed a brisk and easy walk around the lake.
We stayed at this beautiful property for a wedding at Laurel Ridge country club, just a short walk away. Each morning we had a gorgeous view of the mountains from the large deck. It was peaceful a and had everything we needed for a great weekend. The kitchen was well equipped and the place was spacious. We would certainly stay here again next time we are in the area.
This was the second time for me here and it will not be the last. It is a great place to get away away and relax. The price is affordable, the accommodations are super comfy, and the view is fabulous!!
Such a beautiful place in the mountains with an incredible view. It was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The close proximity to Waynesville and Cherokee provide plenty of things to do. Will definitely be back.
Located near casino, GSMNP, 3 miles from entrance for Blue Ridge Parkway, 30 minutes from Asheville and Biltmore House and Grove Park, Cataloochee Ski Area 15 miles away.
